I joined College Visions at the end of 11th grade, and I’m now a student at Rhode Island College majoring in Computer Science. Before I joined CV I thought they would just help me get into college and that would be it. But thankfully they still stand beside me through this process.
The fact that I just moved to the area was standing in my way. I’m from Nigeria, and I wasn’t too familiar with colleges in the United States. CV helped introduce me to various schools and the process involved with getting into them, explaining the requirements and expectations.
When I came to CV, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to attend college after high school. I was thinking about attending a cosmetology school after high school. But after I came to CV, I thought to myself to focus on the bigger advantage which was college.
This semester is going great, thankfully. I live on campus and play a sport. I really need some good time management skills to do that, and I’m glad I still have my CV advisor, and she meets with me on campus. I also get support from the PEP program at RIC.
I’m considering transferring to University of Rhode Island for their computer science program, since that’s my major now. But, I’ll how it goes here at RIC first.
